    By your implication, I take it one will get scoped while the other remains iron sighted (for now).

    If so, I would use my standard criteria. Put the scope (or put the better scope if you are scoping both) on the better performing gun.

    Also, don't be afraid to put a scope on a platform that cost less than the scope.

    Welcome aboard.

    Generally speaking, bolt guns are usually more accurate. They can afford to have tighter tolerances as the action is processed more slowly.

    In this particular case, the stock Win Wildcat (which is the TOZ 78 from the Tula plant in Russia) will likely be the more accurate than the stock 10/22 (by a long shot). I don't have one yet to confirm (have a Varmint/Target on order but they are not out just yet) but the results people have gotten from the Sporter version seems to show this to be the case. Of the few 10/22s I've shot in stock form (most of them mine), they've all had a very hard time consistantly shooting less than 1" at 50 yds, even with higher grade ammo. 1.5" is common though. The Wildcat should be able to go under this easily.

    The 10/22, however, can be built up into a real tackdriver with aftermarket parts. This is the Ruger's biggest plus, the ease of being able to work it over.

    hey guys the win wildcat seems to shoot very well and hold very nice groups the only grip i have about the gun is the trigger has a little slop in it .It also looks pretty cool with that big scope on a gun that has a semi short barrel.Thanks for the help it was the better choice.

    What rings did you use on the wildcat? I had heard it has an 8.5mm rail instead of either the common 3/8" or European 11mm.

    That reminds me to call "Winchester" about my wildcat. Can't find any rings to fit???? After all this is America, right? I thought all .22's sold in America took 3/8". Shame on FN.
